Spring Noodle Salad

This spring noodle salad is an absolute winner for spring this year. Super easy, fresh, tasty and also beautiful! It’s the perfect option for a mid-week meal, easy lunch or to take to a barbeque or picnic.

This salad is extremely nourishing and full of fresh, healthy ingredients. Spring is such a wonderful time for fresh fruit and vegetables, especially with so many of the ingredients being in season!

The dressing for this salad is free from sugar and oils, which are often present in store-bought dressings. To provide some sweetness and balance the traditional Vietnamese flavours in the dressing, we decided to use a little bit of maple syrup.

Simply add your desired protein to make this a complete meal. Grilled salmon, shredded chicken, tofu or your favourite barbeque items. All options will work fabulously.
